FBASE is a microcomputer
relational database package that handles data collected using the R1/R4 Fish and
Fish Habitat Standard Inventory Procedures (Overton and others 1997). FBASE
contains standard data entry screens, data validations for quality control, data
maintenance features, and summary report options. This program also prepares
data for importation into an ARC/INFO Geographic Information System. Users have
easy access to their habitat inventory data in both a raw and summarized format.
FBASE is a stand-alone program and has minimal requirements for RAM and hard
drive space, making it feasible for running on most systems. The data tables are
in a format that makes them easily transportable to other software programs if
users wish to further analyze their data or produce custom reports.
